Founder of the Peak Velocity Strategy
When I showed up at the underground bunker in Nebraska with a baby monitor, my peers were a little bewildered.
“This is our solution,” I explained. “It’s the perfect way for us to communicate from the bunker to the people up top if all hell breaks loose.”
I thought it was brilliant … and I showed my commanding officers how it could save us millions.
The only problem was, when it comes to government organizations, saving money is oftentimes the last priority on their list.
You see, it was the height of the Cold War, I was working in a nuclear missile silo, and one of my commanding officers had a problem.
He wanted a walkie-talkie that could withstand a nuclear attack. The standard military walkie-talkies would be knocked out by the electromagnetic pulse (otherwise known as the EMP blast) that is triggered when a nuclear bomb explodes.
So, the general put of a group of us engineers together in a room and ordered us to work on a solution.
Now, being engineers, we started doing what all engineers do — overthinking things. We tried lining the walkie-talkie with lead, making one out of advanced materials they were using for aircrafts, and all sorts of other complicated solutions involving state-of-the-art technology.
But the reality is, sometimes the solution is much simpler than we think. The Air Force had a great saying for this … KISS … an acronym for “Keep it simple, stupid.”
In this case, a baby monitor was all we needed.
A baby monitor used a plastic transmitter that would survive the EMP blast. Of course, we wanted to rig it to allow two-way communication. But the concept was perfect.
However, the general wanted a high-tech walkie-talkie. So the Air Force continued to spend millions of dollars engineering a unique solution when a $30 baby monitor would have worked.
Investing can be the same way.
We often make it more complicated than it has to be.
For example, people try to “buy low and sell high.”
It’s often called “value investing,” and even though it seems like a simple, no-brainer concept, it’s actually really complicated.
First, you have to find a stock that is “undervalued” — a stock has been trending lower, not for fundamental reasons, but because of some missing piece of information that you, but no one else, can see.
Now, Warren Buffett can do this because he has an army of researchers at his fingertips who conduct intensive due diligence on these companies to find out the hidden value that most investors are missing out on.
But most of us don’t have an army of researchers!
Next, you have to figure out the right time to buy — otherwise you might fall into what’s called a “value trap.”
For example, in 2001, a person may have thought, “Wow, Intel was a $67 stock; now it is a $33 stock. I am getting in at a 50% discount. Nice!”
But the reality is, this stock continued to drop down to $13. At that point, investors then say to themselves, “Well, I am in it for the long haul.” (We’ve all been there.) To this day, Intel is still a $33 stock.
That’s 16 years of a stock going nowhere.
Fact is, stocks that are going down will likely continue to go down. So instead of “buying low and selling high,” you end up “buying low and sitting” or “buying low and selling lower.”
The reality is, trading doesn’t have to be this complicated.
In fact, I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
If you want to rake in big profits in the fastest amount of time possible, all you really have to do is…
Now, I know you might be thinking I’m making this too simple.
I mean, of course you want to buy stocks that are going up. But many people don’t. They buy stocks that are going down!!!
The problem comes back to our emotions. When a stock is going down, we feel like we are getting a “sale,” but when a stock is going up, we feel like we already “missed out.”
But the reality is, the vast majority of the time, stocks that are going up will continue to go up.
This is known as momentum.
And hundreds of research studies, thousands of traders and my own personal experience have proven this one simple fact: Momentum investing … or what I call “buy high and sell higher”… is one of the most effective strategies for getting market-beating returns.
It really is THAT simple.
I’m living proof of this fact.
I’ve been a full-time trader for over 12 years, and following this basic principle has helped me afford a lifestyle that most retirees can only dream about. At 54 years of age, I could quit trading today and keep living the lifestyle I’m living without ever having to worry about money for the rest of my life.
At the end of the day, I have a proprietary, patent-pending strategy called Peak Velocity that helps me find stocks that are going up fast and that will likely continue to go up.
“Buy High and Sell Higher”
and Sit Back and Watch the Profits Roll In
Now, of course, over the last 25 years, I’ve honed my skills and strategy to find the stocks that are going up the fastest … stocks that are at Peak Velocity.
Over the next few days, I’m going to show you exactly how I go through developing a proven strategy from start to finish.
And the best part is, this strategy could help anyone rack up tens of thousands … even hundreds of thousands … in profits in record time. You never have to sit around and wait for years or even decades for the market to recognize a stock is “undervalued.”
Since you’re only targeting stocks that are poised to keep going up — stocks that already have the wind at their backs — you can start making money from the very first day you own the stock.
This is exactly how my Peak Velocity strategy is able to make so much money so quickly.
Like the recommendation in Symantec Corp. that I made for my beta testers on January 6.
The stock had jumped 5% in just five days. Many would think they had already missed out. But the reality is, this upward move confirmed that the stock was going up, and my Peak Velocity strategy proved that the move would accelerate quickly. So, I recommended that beta testers open a trade … and just 20 days later, they had the opportunity to sell the position for a 101% gain!
Then, on January 13, I recommended my beta testers take a stake in the national home builder, Lennar.
The stock had moved up 4.46% in a few days, and my Peak Velocity strategy confirmed the stock was about to shoot up. So I recommended a trade to my beta testers who had the chance to make a 147% gain.
Then there’s my recommendation of Hasbro.
This stock was on the move. It has gone up 7.8% in about a week. Again, most people would think that they were “too late.” But my Peak Velocity strategy confirmed that the stock was about to take off. It took just 26 days for this recommendation to deliver a gain of 465%!
That’s the benefit of using momentum.
It gives you the ability to collect bigger gains in a shorter amount of time than any other strategy I’ve researched.
And believe me, as a Chartered Market Technician, I’ve researched them all.
Now, I’m going to give you a more in-depth look at how I use the momentum to power my trading recommendations during my webinar on Tuesday, March 21.
So, I expect to see you there at 1 p.m. Eastern time sharp. All you have to do is go to www.peakvelocitywebinar.com a few minutes early and my webinar will automatically start.
In the meantime, keep reading my daily posts, because I’m going to give you a glimpse into how I do my historical analysis … and I will reveal the two critical numbers I look at to determine if I have a winning strategy that’s ready to go into beta testing.
These two critical numbers have nothing to do with win percentage, average gains or any other statistics you probably hear most traders talk about.
In fact, most traders I’ve talked to barely even know these statistics exist, and they’re certainly not using them to fine-tune their systems before they start putting real money on the line.
But that’s one of the reasons I’ve been so successful over the last 12 years. I’m willing to get my hands dirty and do the research that no one else is willing to do.
In short, I need to be 100% confident in my strategy before I ever risk a dime in the markets.
I want the same for you, which is why I look forward to seeing you at my webinar this coming Tuesday.
